About the property

Beautifully Restored Apartment

Historic Apartment - Newly Restored

Three blocks from the Woodley Metro Station on the Red Line, the Marriott and Omni hotels and and many restaurants.

Great access to running trails and the Zoo.

Queen-size bed in the bedroom and full-size futon in living room.

The Space

Apartment is used only for short-term corporate and professional rentals. 100-year-old house. Beautiful woodwork and floors. 10 foot ceilings.

Guest Access

The apartment is self-contained on it's own floor of the house. Access to washer and dryer in the basement available.

Interaction with Guests

I live in an apartment upstairs above the apartment and am available if there is a problem.

The Neighborhood

DC's best neighborhood with many restaurants a short walk away. Most of the houses are owner-occupied and very well maintained. The house overlooks Rock Creek Park with may running and bicycling trails.

Getting around

Three blocks from the Red Line metro stop. One and a half block from a bus stop. Three blocks from two bike share racks.

Other Things to Note

If you are coming in for a conference at either the Wardman Marriott or the Omni Shorham hotels, this is a relatively inexpensive and very convenient place to stay.

Far above the usual offering

  • 5 of 5

The rental unit has been upgraded by Sean - very nice woodwork, furniture, original art on the walls, rugs. He lives on the floor above, and is available to help with any issues. Sean is very conscientious both with the upgrade of his property and with the comfort of his guests. We plan to return.

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

Sean is a great host. Very accommodating and friendly. He even invited me to join he and his friends for a cookout one evening. The property and neighborhood are also great. Nice quite neighborhood and a well-kept, spacious property. Very near to the Adams Morgan, Woodley Park, and the metro. I would definitely stay here again.

About Sean

I am a 20 year DC resident who has worked as a geologist, political operative and a renewable energy developer. I am originally from Iowa and still believe in midwestern friendliness. Bicycling and skiing are my favorite activities. I have done much of the restoration for my house with my own hands.

Sean purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Sean chose Embassy Row

When I can to DC in 1992 I friend drove me down the street I now live on. I could not believe there were houses in the center DC overlooking a forest. I knew at that minute I wanted to live on my street.

What makes this apartment unique

Park view. Owner occupied neighborhood. Three blocks from metro. Hundreds of restaurants in walking distance. Walkability makes it a small town in a big city. A good week , I never use my car.
